Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

May 2010!!!

thats when i go! which gives me a great amount of time to complete another necessary goal on my list, get my freakin passport!!! at that time, my son will be 1 1/2, so he can walk! yay! and my mom wants to come -super cool. so, finally! OMG! i can’t wait!!!

i got my dates!

but they aren’t good. they want me to go in 2009! everyone i spoke to said that it was always like a 5 or 6 year wait before they’d get people on their pilgrimages. i guess it’s because lots of people are dropping out cuz they are afraid of the bombings and stuff in israel. but it’s not that i’m not going to take the dates they gave me just cuz of the bombings, it’s more that i’d like to be in a little more financially predictable situation so that, say, every couple of months we can save up to make our trip as lovely as possible. on pilgrimage, we spend 9 days in Haifa. and the most expensive plane ticket is to and from the US. once we’re there, it’s like a 300 dollar ticket to cairo, amman, larnaca, beirut and istanbul. so, i would like to make the most of my pigrimage and get to travel through out the middle east while i’m already there. i’m not quite sure if 2009 is such a good choice for us. i have the option to request different dates. i might just do that.
